I am working with some clients who have a lovely home with wonderful furnishings that just need a little updating. We worked on the kitchen and then one thing led to another. Both the husband and wife have a wonderful sense of style. They are absolutely wonderful people. I have just loved working with them. Their home is to be featured on the local Berries and Branches tour this fall . If you would like to buy tickets you can do so here http://www.svmhfoundation.org/page.aspx?pid=275.
This is our textile palette for the living and dining area. My client (shrewdly) has classic upholstered pieces that are in a neutral palette except for one wing chair. Hence the room can be updated easily with some simple fabric updates .
Our focus fabric is this wonderful floral called Botanique from Suzanne Tucker Home http://www.suzannetuckerhome.com/textile/3006/07. Both my client and I fell in love with this fabric at first sight.
Jane Shelton’s Safari will go on an existing ottoman to provide a fresh update http://janeshelton.com/search2.php
Ralph Lauren Trouville Ticking in Denim will go on the cushion of an existing wicker chair https://search.e-designtrade.com/Ralph-Lauren-Home/LFY65661F.RL-400/CoverInformation.aspx
Ralph Lauren La Ruche Canvas in Linen will go on a wing chair https://search.e-designtrade.com/Ralph-Lauren-Home/LCF65925FRL-400/CoverInformation.aspx. This is a burlap looking fabric. We will add nail heads to dress it up a bit and add a pillow of the Suzanne Tucker fabric.
This Ralph Lauren Fabric Antibes Batik https://search.e-designtrade.com/Ralph-Lauren-Home/LCF65506F.RL-400/CoverInformation.aspx is on a chair in the Kravet Showroom and everytime I go in the showroom it stops me in my tracks. It will add the pop that the room needs and will be used on pillows.
This fabric from Nomad Chic will also be used on pillows for the sofa https://www.e-designtrade.com/dspimg.asp. We love the textural interest this piece adds.
As you know Suzanne Tucker is a local designer and principal of the renowned firm of Tucker and Marks. You can see more of her work here http://www.tuckerandmarks.com/. I am really enamored of her textile line and her overall design aesthetic. You can find her fabrics here http://www.suzannetuckerhome.com/content/textiles. Her wonderful new book http://www.amazon.com/Suzanne-Tucker-Interiors/dp/1580933610/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1374508390&sr=1-1&keywords=suzanne+tucker will be available on October 10th.
I am loving Ralph Lauren’s new lineup of fabrics as well. What do you think of the fabrics we have chosen? I would love to hear your opinion!
